    First, I'd just like to say I don't recommend you buy them, but I'll give you my experience with them since I wore 1 pair exclusively before improving my steez. It was the only pair of shoes I had for that period of time, so I wore them everyday.

    I thought they were quite comfortable until the 2 year mark. After the 2 years of wear, they became extremely uncomfortable, and I had to get another pair of shoes. The insole is really thin, providing little arch support. I replaced mine with another insole, but they were still uncomfortable, so I can't use them as beaters anymore. The last time I wore them (~6 months ago), I had to walk pretty slow or experience great discomfort in my arches.

    They fit short and narrow. I'm a 7.5D, and I wore mine in a 10. To put this in perspective, I wear 40 in common projects, but the CPs are barely shorter than the cesario lo I have. Truth be told, I should've picked a size 9.5 for a shorter length, but I felt the width was too narrow. You should size up by at least 1.

    If you wore the shoes daily for 2 years...I'd say you got your money's worth...especially at what a pair of those cost at retail.

    Haha seriously, I even got them on sale from cmonwealth for $56 shipped. Good deal, and I wore the crap out of them. I just don't think the hypebeasty steez resonates with the average SF poster.

    The Creative Recreation made in italy line (turinos etc) are sized the same as common projects. I just picked up a pair of turinos for a good price and they fit exactly the same. Ex. 43 fit like a 10.5

    I have a couple pairs. They're alright, but their site has 70% off and free shipping occassionally which makes them worth it.

    They normal line ones fit small to me. I'm normally a 10.5/11, and I need a 11.5 in creative recreation. I haven't tried the made in italy ones.

    Yup, CRs fit super small/narrow to me. I think I have a pair in 12, and I'm a 10.5 typically.

    Were they cesario his? A friend of mine had a pair awhile ago. They fit similarly to the cesario lo. Just to let you know, for the ones I have there's probably 2 thumbnails extra room. I just couldn't handle my pinky toe being potentially squished. That and I was an idiot in shoe sizing when I was younger because of Nike. [​IMG] But I really can't see someone being able to size down unless, as someone pointed out, it's another design you're wearing.

    Those were the ones I tried on. I was able to size down by half a size.

    Yeah, their sizing must not be consistent. I've only dealt with their cesario style. If you can fit 1/2 size lower, you're probably right.
